Joining a Webinar by Phone or Other Connection

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you are a case participant (attorney, party, witness, or other person who will actively participate in the hearing), it is strongly recommended that you join Zoom using the Zoom application rather than by a telephone connection.  If you must appear by telephone, the numbers posted for each judge are for the public and are listen-only, so you will need to contact the Courtroom Deputy (CRD) at least one business day before the hearing to request a Zoom invitation (which will be sent via email) in order to join the hearing as a case participant.

Courtesy/Chambers Copy Requirements

The submission of chambers copies is often required for electronically filed documents. Whereas the local rules state whether and how soon chambers copies must be submitted, judges’ individual standing orders sometimes create additional requirements and may differ from the local rules in other particulars. If they are not in agreement, these orders supersede the local rules.

View general information requirements for courtesy/chambers copies under the local rules.

The pertinent parts of Judge Wilken’s standing orders are set forth below:

Chambers copies of all non-administrative motions shall be submitted to the Clerk’s Office for receipt no later than 4:00 p.m. the business day after the documents are filed. Parties need not submit chambers copies of supporting documents, including declarations or exhibits.

Proposed orders should be e-mailed to Submission by overnight delivery such as Federal Express or UPS is sufficient.

All chambers’ copies must be double-sided, and paperclipped or binderclipped. Documents that are of a larger volume may be bound with a two-pronged fastener.
